Grease a muffin pan with butter or cooking spray and set aside.

Melt the butter or margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat.

Stir in marshmallows, red and yellow food coloring, adjusting color if needed to get a nice shade of orange.

When the marshmallows are completely melted, pour over the popcorn and stir to evenly distribute the candy, nuts and marshmallow.

Use a greased spoon to fill the muffin cups.

Insert a piece of licorice to act as the stem, and mold the popcorn around it.

Let stand until firm, about 15 minutes, and then pull the pumpkins out by their stems.

Serve or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
